Online forums are entirely new to me, so here goes.
I have loved classical guitar for a very long time. I studied music in college, but in the vocal/choral department. When I found I needed a few more credits to round out my schedule one semester, I decided to try guitar class, and was hooked. My first (and only) guitar teacher was himself self-taught.
Fast forward—when life interrupted, as in marriage and rearing children , my guitar playing took a long hiatus. But about five years ago, after my children had left the nest, I took it up again. I am currently working my way through my old guitar method books, as well as some other pieces. I play mostly for my own enjoyment. Giselle (my 40-year-old Yamaha) is not a concert instrument, but I like her tone and touch.
